  • GNOME 2.28
    The Karmic Koala desktop makes use of GNOME 2.28 and sports an updated Human theme. Ubuntu One is found in the Places menu and the status of the service is shown by the cloud in the applet section in the top right. To the left of the clock is an envelope that represents the internet communication programs.

  • No more Pidgin
    Clicking on the envelope shows that Empathy has replaced Pidgin as the default IM program, with Evolution remaining as the mail program.

  • Ubuntu One
    Ubuntu One is a service that synchronises and shares files across multiple Ubuntu instances; it is similar in many ways to Dropbox. Free sign-up gives users a 2GB limit that is upgradeable for US$10 a month to 50GB.

  • 3G USB Support

    Unfortunately I had to fall back from Karmic Beta to Jaunty because of a bug that fixed access to the mass storage device in USB 3G dongles but dropped access to the serial device (modem). Hope they get it fixed in time for release
  • Swap space at end of disk?

    If installing to SSDs, swap space location is immaterial.

    However, on a HDD, the further the swap space is from the apps, the more time penalty it imposes, considering that when it is used, it imposes delays anyway.

    If a whole large partition is being used, it would be better to have swap near the start. If two, in the middle.
